After 40 years, we, in addition to a well-fitting skirt and the height of the heels of our shoes, began to worry about the condition of our facial skin. Time, unfortunately, is incorruptible, and the first signs of aging in the form of fine wrinkles are already reflected in the mirror. How to tighten the face at home? Let's talk about this.
We tighten the oval of the face and chin using load
We have selected for you a small series of exercises that will help you eliminate the "dog cheeks", the double chin and tighten the skin of the face. After all, it is these age-related changes that spoil our mood in the morning when we look in the mirror.
Neck and chin
The first exercise "is responsible" for the appearance of the neck and chin, and also smoothes out wrinkles under the lower lip.
- We put a hand on the clavicle and fix the skin. Lift your chin. The mouth must be closed.
- We glue the lower lip, stretching it to the sides. At the same time, you should feel the muscles in your neck, chin, and lower lip tighten.
- The position should be fixed for five seconds and relax.
- You should start with five repetitions, increasing your number by one every day. You need to bring up to thirty reps.
This exercise gives excellent results. Especially if you do it several times a day.
To tighten the skin of the face, and at the same time remove ruffles, this exercise will help.
- We take a breath. We stretch our lips into a smile. We press the tongue against the alveoli (tubercles on the palate just behind the teeth).
- We tighten the chin muscles and fix the position for five seconds.
- You should start the classes with five repetitions, taking them to fifteen.
Lift and shape
The following exercise at the same time tightens the skin and improves the shape of the facial oval.
- We put our index fingers at the corners of the mouth and fix it.
- Now we lower the lower lip and tense the chin muscles to the maximum.
- We hold the position for five seconds and relax.
- You should start with five repetitions, increasing the number of repetitions daily.
- We put our hands in a "lock" and press them up to the chin.
- Overcoming the resistance of your hands, you should try to open your mouth. You should feel your chin muscles tighten.
Another exercise to help tighten the skin. Do it regularly and you'll get rid of the hated jerks (sometimes they show up after 40 years) pretty quickly.
- We stretch our lips into a smile.
- "Put" the lower lip on the lower teeth. You should feel the tension in your chin muscles.
- We fix the position for five seconds.
At the end of the load, you need to perform a light massage.
Spoon massage - performance technique
Tight and elastic facial skin - This is what women strive to achieve when they are between 50 and 55 years old. And one of the available methods is massage with ordinary scoops. True, there are still several nuances here:
- You should take teaspoons or tablespoons for dessert.
- It is better if the spoons are made of silver or cupro-nickel. In extreme cases, it is allowed to use ordinary ones, but the effect will be somewhat less.
Before starting the massage, you should cleanse your face of cosmetics and apply your own moisturizer. The best time for the procedure is in the morning.
Note! You need to knead your face strictly along the massage lines.
Before starting the session, the spoons must be disinfected. To do this, simply clean each one with alcohol.
No swelling or bruising under the eyes.
- Cold spoons should be applied to the upper lids for five seconds. The number of repetitions is five. Then repeat the procedure with the lower lids.
- Apply cool spoons to the inner corners of the eyes. Slowly, making undulating movements with the devices, move the spoons towards the temporal region. Apply three gentle pressures on the temporal bone and then move the spoons towards your ears. Hold them for five seconds and bring them back to the inner corners of the eyes. The number of repetitions is three.
We remove the "crow's feet"
We apply hot spoons to the corners of the eyes. With the help of circular movements, we move them to the temples. We repeat the movement three times. Then the same movement should be done once using cold spoons. The total number of alternations is three.
Eliminate forehead wrinkles.
Hot and cold spoons are used for the massage.
- Grease a hot spoon with oil. Attach it to the beginning of your eyebrows. Now, in circular motions, move the devices to the temporal region. The number of repetitions is ten.
- With a hot spoon, you should draw a spiral on the temple. Then, hold the device over the entire surface of the forehead up to the other temple, where it should also "represent" a spiral. Now take another warm spoon and repeat the movement again, but in the opposite direction.
- Place two warm spoons in the middle of the forehead. Now start to draw a zigzag, directing the spoons towards the temples. When they reach the temporal bone, press six lightly. Then follow the same movements, but with cold cutlery.
Correcting wrinkles between the eyebrows
Place the warm spoons between your eyebrows and press them six times. After that, lift the spoons along the surface of the forehead. The same movement should be done with cold spoons. The number of repetitions is three.
Straighten the nasolabial folds.
Nasolabial folds add an additional 10 years to the appearance, and the very expression of the face becomes somewhat sad. Shall we get rid of it?
She opens her mouth as she says the letter "O". She applies some wrinkle cream on a warm spoon. Now, starting from the wings of the nose, play the instruments in a circular motion towards the corners of the mouth. The number of repetitions is three.
A spoon massage, even done at home, notably improves the condition of the skin of the face, eliminating many fine lines.
Loose skin indicates a clear lack of natural collagen and elastin. That is why, after turning thirty, you can use homemade lifting masks. At a more mature age, they should become an indispensable part of facial care.
At the beginning of using the mask, it is recommended to apply it twice a week for two months. So once a week is enough.
The most popular treatment option is egg white masks. They "work" quickly and efficiently: the result is visible after the first application.
- Add a little lemon juice to the beaten egg white (just a couple or three drops). Apply the mixture in layers: after the first one dries, you need to apply the second one, etc. You should remove the composition after 20 minutes.
- Mix the whipped protein with a little carrot puree. Apply for 15 minutes and then remove with warm water.
- Beat the egg white and mix with fresh strawberry or raspberry puree (recommended for mature skin). Keep the mask on for 15 minutes. The acids contained in the pulp of the fruit will make the sagging skin soft and firm again.
- Grind the oatmeal in a coffee grinder and combine it with the beaten egg white. Apply the facial care for about fifteen minutes. Massage lightly while washing the product. The flour particles will work as a peel.
Perfect results are obtained with treatments whose recipe includes yeast.
- Fresh baker's yeast should be diluted in water to a creamy consistency. Keep the mask on for twenty minutes.
- Dilute the yeast with water to get a thick mixture, like homemade sour cream. Then you should add a tablespoon of aloe juice and stir well. Apply the mask to your face and leave for 15 minutes.
For a longer lasting result, it is necessary to alternate the masks.
Additionally, you can use the following procedures:
- Contrast wash. You just need to alternate between fairly hot and almost icy water during your morning wash.
- Contrasting compresses. Lie on your face, alternating pieces of soft cloth moistened with water (napkins or towels) - also hot and very cold.
- Herb decoction ice. It is necessary to freeze the decoctions of parsley and calendula. In the morning, cleanse your face first with calendula ice and then with parsley.
The beauty of a woman is daily work and you cannot be lazy here. We hope that in our article you will find her personal recipe for preserving youth.
